IMAGE OF THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD IN THE WEST brings out the main contours of Western scholarship on the life and achievements of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). It traces remnants of the negative image of the Prophet found in medieval polemical works to twentieth-century works, especially those of the three most influential English writers of our tunes - William Muir, David S. Margoliouth and William M. Watt. In addition to mapping out the chequered history of relations between the West and Islam it helps one gain or renew acquaintance with the exemplary life and great achievements of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
